From COVID19 lockdowns, to staycations, to Omicron taking over another Christmas, it is fair to say 2021 has been interesting for everyone, including the teams here are Pogo Studio and Pogo Digital Healthcare. However, alongside all the craziness which was this year, our team has also had the most exciting year so far. Let’s take a look at some of the big wins we, here at Pogo Studio, have experienced throughout 2021… there are some good ones!

  1. Our flagship information sharing product, Tailored Talks, successfully piloted in NHS Lothian, and is currently supporting NHS Scotland’s response to the COVID19 pandemic in some intensive care units.
  2. Care Calendar, our platform which provides clinicians with a secure and intuitive online space to manage the delivery on in-hospital care, is now ready for pilot.
  3. We worked as part of the Neurological Framework project with the Scottish Government to deliver content for the 14 main neurological conditions in Scotland, which is being rolled out in the new year.
  4. Our agency client, Young Stem Leaders, a programme which aims to spark greater interest and participation in STEM subjects among young people in Scotland, is now being rolled out across England due to its great success across Scotland.
  5. Our fantastic Managing Director and Founder, Jack Francis, won Scotland/Northern Ireland’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. Very well deserved!
  6. As we saw major growth for the business and our responsibilities this year, we have had to grow our team to keep up with the increased demand. Therefore, we have welcomed 3 new fantastic members of staff in 2021, who have all helped Pogo stretch its ability and successes throughout the year.
  7. We moved into our new office. As we have expanded, we have had to upgrade our office space to accommodate our growing team. We are now based out of CodeBase in Edinburgh – which provides us with fantastic views of Edinburgh Castle!
  8. We have been working with NHS Lothian to deliver some great services centred around long COVID, stay tuned to see what comes of that in the new year.
  9. We have been working in collaboration with Edinburgh Cancer Centre to develop exciting new services which will massively help those suffering from cancer.


And that’s a wrap on 2021. Thank you to all of our fantastic clients who have helped make this year so successful, and to the entire team here at Pogo, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve all of this without you.


See you soon for an exciting 2022, we can’t wait to bring you on the journey!
